Hi Jill, have been following you now for a while, have tried a few recipes they all turned too good and perfect. Thanks for helping with wonderful recipes, highly appreciate your efforts. Am keen to try the carrot bars recipe, would the bars taste good without the frosting, as am looking to lower the calories.

They are still delicious even without the frosting. Enjoy =)

Looking forward to trying these out. I’m curious why you have started using deglet date instead of modules? I’ve noticed you’ve been doing it for a while. Thanks for all your great recipes

Deglets are considerably more affordable and they are available in almost any grocery store.

The recipe looks delicious! Can you use medjool dates?

Jill Dalton June 13, 2023 - 12:06 pm

Absolutely. Medjools are usually twice the size of deglets so you would use half the amount.

Could these be made into cupcakes? Would you change the cooking time?

Jill Dalton June 17, 2023 - 12:13 pm

I think that would work. I would check them at 25 minutes.

Hi Jill, this looks wonderful! Is there a possible sub for the pineapple? That seems like a pretty important ingredient but I’m allergic unfortunately. Thank you.

Jill Dalton June 17, 2023 - 12:12 pm

You can actually leave it out and it will still be ok.

I am on my journey for a plant based diet and the Carrot cake is lovely, found the frosting not sweet enough but then my taste buds may have not adjusted yet. I added a little extra vanilla extract. I will toast some walnuts for the top too.

Howard June 26, 2023 - 9:59 pm

Can u use vanilla powder instead of extract?

I made this yummy cake from the recipe before watching your wonderful video. I realized later that you meant us to use 1 1/2 cups of shredded carrots, not 1 1/2 cups carrots, shredded, as per the written recipe. I’ll be making it again and will do it the way you did it in the video. One can never have too much cake!! Thank you so much for all you do for this community! I’m very grateful.

By the way I did a presentation on wfpb diets to my autoimmune support group. One guest asked about desserts. I pointed him to your site. It’s the best.

These carrot bars looks so moist in texture
